Some destination have been preliminary thought of:
- Maledives (how easy it is to arrange fly fishing?)
- Seychelles (pirate problem?)
- Caribbean (haven't yet dig up info, but there is probably a lot of places, ie. Los Roques)
Have been to Seychelles and Maldives. Did Praslin in Seychelles with a very pregnant wife, and Maldives with my almost 2yr old son. Both are awesome destinations for fishing and lazing on the beach.
Note that the Maldives reports do not allow fishing off the beaches around the resort - you have to charter a boat to get away from the resort to fish. The Maldives resorts are also fussy about kids and many do not allow kids at all. Fishing is stunning though. A lot of it is flats style site fishing. Can give you lots of tips on how to make the fishing affordable as it costs $850 per day for a Game fishing boat charter (which was useless in my opinion). Had much more fun on my guide-myself trips. The other thing I can say about Maldives is that the magazine pics do not do the place justice - it is 20 times more beautiful.
Praslin in Seychelles was very child friendly. Fishing in certain spots can be quite good. I ended up catching lots of tiny fish at the resort. Also chartered a Game fishing boat for a day to look for Sails, but did not get any. Raised a few BIG yellowfin tuna and managed to catch plenty Bonnies though.
Personally, I would go back to both places, except that I would do Maldives without my kids, and Seychelles with my kids (now 4 and 2).
Hope this helps.
